.t. revolution and a shift in policies under the clinton and george w. bush administrations. from washington, this is one hour and 25 minutes. >> welcome, everybody. i am simon rosenberg. we are grateful that you came out here today. if we had done an event around polling we would have a few more people, but we are lucky to have joining rob shapiro, the chair of our globalization initiative, our good friend edward luce, who is now the former bureau chief of "the financial times," now chief american commentator and is also a published author. he has recently written one of the more influential or at least highly commentated -- there was so much commentary around his book about whether or not america was in decline in the economic issues we will be talking about today and we feel lucky he took time out of his busy schedule to guide us. many of you know rob shapiro, who has a long history of policy leadership here in washington, starting in the early days working for daniel patrick moynihan, to helping advise bill clinton in 1992, and eventually becoming the undersecretary of commerce in the se
was bill clinton. you know, the interesting thing was, when he was elected, he asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so that we can reduce the deficit and make investment in education, research, and guess what? a bunch of folks running for congress at the time said this is going to hurt the economy. this is going to kill job creation. if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates has to be running for president right now. it turns out his bath at their math was just as bad back then as it is now. by the end of bill clinton's second term, americans created 23 million new jobs. poverty was doubt and the deficit became the biggest surplus in history. colorado, we know the ideas. we know that our ideas work. we also know those that don't work. eight years after bill clinton left office. his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax breaks they did not need. companies enjoy tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas and insured that oil companies and wall street were given free rein. folks got to play by different set of rules than the rest of us. the

to make contributions. it happens from time to time. it certainly happened during the clinton years. but i don't think it is a common problem and is not on a scale that you suggest. we're not talking about billions of dollars in any of those cases. it's really thousands or in the worst case, hundreds of thousands. the fact that it is notorious, but you know about them, is in some ways encouraging, because it means the transparency process that we have is working the way it should, that it's possible for people to find this out, and to monitor the process. it is in everybody's interest, in the opponent's interest, to make sure my opponent is following the rules just the way i am, so they look very closely. while there are some incentives and some ways in which bad actors can get involved in the process, i don't think it's a big problem. host: a final question, is this the end of public financing as we see all this money coming into the campaigns? guest: absolutely, and with the program exists today. we will not see president of public funding in the same way ever again. the real question is
to the clinton-era tax rates. we need economic growth, and that is where the focus needs to be. i support bringing down the tax rate down to 20%. we need to make sure our tax scale is competitive. >> do you see that there is maneuverability in the tax proposals? >> in 2007, i signed it the grover norquist pledge. in 2010 i was asked to sign it again, and i did not. >> you changed on that? >> i do not believe we need to raise taxes at this time and i do not need to sign a pledge to do that. >> we have to be realistic about what we are going to do and make tough decisions. i talked to people who are affluent and they do not mind paying more. >> we will continue the discussion about the economy, and whether the math really adds up for the deficit. we will look at some of the numbers, all of that on the other side of the debate. please stay with us. welcome back to the continuation of our debate. with us today, congressman allen west and patrick murphy. we will continue our discussion with george bennett. >> we left hanging on the deficit. you are opposed to raising taxes. the deficit this pa

, new hampshire was very solidly republican for many years. recently, i think it is sort of the clinton 1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he one the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush. kerrey., john care the president got a nine point victory in 2008. we really are tossups state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is there early voting and how do the hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there's not early voting, but there's absentee ballot. you have to sign a form saying you are not going to be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, the polls are open from about 7:00 until 7:00. some locations are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. other statistical interesting facts are that we are one of the least taxed states in the nation. the least. we have no income tax, no sales tax. the democratic and republican candidates will pledge on that issue, saying they will not have an income tax or sales tax. our two guber

with and prick supported -- president clinton supported that. >> i'm proud to have the support of president clinton who said the progressive version is the best and it was the budget that most invested in putting america back into the future business because it protects social security, medicare and makes america competitive internationally. so i think president clinton is a ranl guy and thought it was a great budget number one. number two i've worked with republicans. we should try to work together. i've worked on the fight to end the war in afghanistan. but the reality is there are big differences between democrats and republicans in washington. mr. doherty is a republican he's committed to more tax breaks for mill nares to repealing obama care and starteding the process all over again whofment are committed to subsidies for big oil and ending the guarantee of medicare. when you put them in power you make the chances of their agenda more of a reality. it matters a lot who we send there. the president put forth the american jobs act. . the president of the united states. he never got a hea
significant votes are expected. the president had been scheduled to go to ohio today with bill clinton. that has been cancelled. joe biden was supposed to be there, but is not going to be able to go to new hampshire today. people are trying to move around their appearances, the president basically had a couple of appearances and is then coming back. the white house is basically monitoring conditions. host: we are talking about two different changes to the schedule. one is the practicality of not going to a certain swing state, but the other has to deal with how candidates are perceived. talk to us about that angle. host: mike holly had an interesting story today. no one wants to be seen as politicizing a storm, but on the other hand they have a job to do next week. no one has talked about suspending their campaign. after the john mccain experience four years ago, no one would actually use that phrase. there are unpredictable ways in which this could affect people. no one wants to be seen as trying to take political of vantage of this. but the effect could include things like not being
clinton here, joe biden, the president, etc. politically, we are going to get the job done in the next few days. host: we are talking with democratic congressman tim ryan of ohio, member of the budget committee. if you want to ask him about the race in ohio or budget committee questions, give us a call. democratic line -- 202-585-3880 the republican line -- 202-585- 3881 ohio residents, we still have that line open to you -- 202- 585-3883. congressman ryan, a couple comments on twitter about the jobs numbers. liz smith writes in -- frankly, that few of jobs shouldn't be getting anyone satisfied or excited. another comment from james ard -- the jobs numbers are irrelevant. obama has no hope of americans giving him another chance. your thoughts on those comments. guest: nobody is satisfied. no one will say -- let's just quit doing what we are doing. who is able to take us from where we were, which was a hole that was dug with some ideological policies that have been proven not to work, blow a hole in budget deficit, the economy collapses? i would like to ask -- if these policies that they wa

. and then president obama and bill clinton will wrap up the day of campaigning in bristow, virginia. but first, this is this week's radio addresses. president obama talking about the countries response to hurricane sandy. then mitt romney talking about the upcoming election. >> this weekend, millions of our fellow americans are still picking up the pieces from one of the worst storms in our history. i toured new jersey on wednesday with governor christie, and witnessed some of the terrible devastation firsthand. it's heartbreaking. families have lost loved ones. entire communities have been wiped away. even some of the first responders who repeatedly put themselves in harm's way to bravely save the lives of others have suffered losses of their own. today, i ask everyone to keep them in your prayers. and as president, i promise them this -- your country will be there for you for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild. throughout the week, i've been in constant contact with governors and mayors in the affected areas, who are doing an excellent job in extraordinarily difficult circumstances.
will join president clinton and a monday afternoon campaign appearance. mitt romney has scrubbed his appearances today, instead spending the next two days in ohio. just over one week ago in the campaign. we will be talking about early voting on "the washington journal." we want to begin with the what this question. what if it is not decided on election day? what if there is a recount or multiple recounts? let's begin with some news of the morning. the front page of "the new york times. marty it is now counted by county. -- it is now county by county. there is also this from "the washington post." va. even as being scrubbed for a number of candidates. the scheduled destruction did not stop the two candidates from delivering attacks on each other yesterday. the president of using his of parents to accuse mitt romney of raising taxes on middle class when he was governor of massachusetts. the question we are focusing on this morning is, what if there is an election dispute? we are basing it apart on a story that has this. election disputes likely. we already posted the question on the fa
clinton. live coverage begins at 3:30 p.m. eastern. on friday, mary shapiro spoke about the ongoing implementation of the 2010 dodd-frank finance regulations law. chairman and shapiro delivered the keynote address, the conference hosted by george washington university. this is about 45 minutes. >> good morning. i am the dean of the law school. i want to welcome you to this conference, and obviously, welcome mary shapiro, the chairman of the u.s. securities and exchange commission. one of the things that i think makes this law school, the george washington law school distinctive, and different from other top law schools, is the degree to which we are integrated into the real world of law and policy practice in this country. one of the things we are always striving to do is not be an ivory tower, academic institution solely, but also one that is always trying to engage the practicing bar, people from corporations, people who are not lawyers, in the educational enterprise, and also in public policy discussions. obviously, we have a great and vantage being in washington, d.c. and having
for eight year, we had a president who shared our beliefs and his name was bill clinton. his economic plan asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so we could reduce our deficit and invest in our future. at the time, the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said this would hurt the economy and kill jobs. it turns out that his judgment was just as bad back then as it is today. by the end of president clinton's second term, america created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up and poverty was down and we had the biggest surplus in our history instead of a deficit. we know the ideas we believe in work. we know their ideas don't work. for most of the last decade, we tried what they wanted to do, giving big tax cuts to the wealthy that we could not afford, giving insurance companies and oil companies and wall street free rein to do whatever they pleased. you know what we got? falling incomes, record deficits, the poorest job growth in half a century and an economic crisis that we have been cleaning up after for the past four years. so, we know what
guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours, you might get an additional point or two out of the few remaining undecided. host: the first call
was a little not leave. i thought they would feel the need to do with bill clinton tobias, always answer the -- advised which was always answer the questions from voters -- advised, always answer the question from voters. >> you got the sense that they felt there was so much at stake that they could not afford to not carry out the mission, and in the president's case, to be there, ann romney's case, to continue to be presidential -- and in romney's case, to continue to be presidential. and to have smart answers to questions. >> i like the town hall format. i like the idea of -- of it. i guess the problem is there were many times -- the second question was about gas prices. the first question was neutral, i'm worried i'm not calling to have a job. the second question went straight at the president and said your energy secretary says it is not his job to keep energy prices down, do you think it is his job, and the next thing i know we were arguing about drilling in public lands. i went back and said the question was do you think it is the job of the government, and then they went off on th

. this is the problem with that debt. when president clinton left office we had a balanced budget and we had a way forward to retire the debt. we went off the path, and it is not a democrat went off the pad or republican went off the path, we went into the ditch in a bipartisan way. the solutions that we see over and over again are the partisan solutions, to fight back and forth with no one willing to sit down at that kitchen table and actually sit down and solve problems. i would tell you my personal philosophy is that all problems in america can be solved if we put partisanship aside, if we do what is right for the country, and we stop playing political games. we have a huge problem with this debt. we cannot sustain it, but we cannot solve this problem by yelling across the aisle. we have to sit down together to get it done. >> would you like me to repeat the question? >> $16 trillion. admiral marlon, chairman of the joint chiefs, said the biggest risk to america is not iran, not worth three, not afghanistan, not terrorists, it is our deficit. it is $16.20 trillion today. at the first debate it
of this mess, and it will take, as clinton said, another four years to get out of it. but i do see some positives. host: jim, do you really think that business owners are going to risk profits and losses based on trying to make the president look bad? caller: i don't think business owners are. i think that big corporations that have billionaire stockholders -- if my taxes were going to go from $140 million on a billion dollars a year to $360 million, yes, i do. host: all right. that's jim in orlando, florida, where they are watching out for hurricane sandy. they're looking at that all up and down the eastern seaboard. and in the "new york times" this morning, we've got a picture of vice president joe bide known oshkosh, wisconsin, on our friday -- on vice president joe biden in oshkosh, wisconsin, on friday. he was scheduled for an event in virginia, but it was cancelled. fears of storm disrupting final days of campaign is the headline. sandy is expected to be a strong tropical storm that could cause severe coastal flooding, intense wind damage, and knocking out power to millions of peo
by clinton. so this is bipartisan, that is our economy and we wrote the rules as far as a global economy and others follow it. so when we talk about shipping overseas, that's the game. we wrote the rules. i will close on this, on the great city of detroit when we always talk about the bailout or which way it should go or bain capital. people have to realize, they have to understand this, most of general motors' jobs are now presently overseas and the head of general motors who took all of the money is now crying that $7.5 million in pay is not enough. the united states auto workers are still at entry level being hired in at over $19 an hour, that's just their pay but their total compensation with health care, with their bonuses comes out to $55 an hour. >> brian in oscota, michigan. gideon moore, talk to us about the economic situation particularly in mechanic levenburg -- mecklenburg county and charlotte, which is a big banking center. >> it is primarily a finance center. we have been working to expand our energy base as well with duke energy as kind of a hub of that. but historically h
administration? or as president clinton said, why would they go back to the bush policies on steroids? i have come to one conclusion. the only one i can figure out is about their attitude about america and their attitude about half the american people. you heard his insulting comments that 47% of the american people are -- here's the part that bothers me. when he said they are not willing to take responsibility for the allies. -- for their own lives. these people are our neighbors. he is talking about my parents when they were alive. the people i grew up with. the people here in lynchburg. they include seniors to afford their whole lives to pay for a social security. and did not pay taxes on that. nor should they pay taxes on that. 60,000alking about the warriors risking their lives in afghanistan, pay no income taxes on their salaries. nor should it. speaking of those warriors, how many of you know someone who was been deployed to afghanistan or iraq over the last two decades? we know you. we owe their families. i checked every single day and this morning again with the defense department, h
. the president says the buck stops with him. well, the buck stops with him, he or hillary clinton, they need to make a decision and a swift one as to who decided not to protect the ambassador in the first place. not just sending troops in, but in the first place, why were they not having any protection of any kind of consequence. >> and one of the other questions is then who told the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, when she went on the five shows, as far as the video tape, that was at least at that point believed to be the reason for this spontaneous demonstration, who do you think told her and press secretary jay carney and others to basically talk about it as the video tape being responsible for the demonstrations? >> you know, i don't know and that's really what's made it worse for the administration, is that because this went on for about two weeks, now i think they sort of have been campaign fokabitzingover something that t necessary my important, whether it was terrorism or not terrorism, but it is pretty clear for two weeks, they were saying it was primarily balls of this mov
to the event are being asked to bring relief supplies. bill clinton will be campaigning for the present today at a rally in minneapolis at the university of minnesota. we will have another event this afternoon. paul ryan will drop by a romney campaign office banking volunteers for help with storm relief efforts. this evening he is scheduled to stop at another office in hudson. fo>> i like to ask you a questin similar to that of the vice- presidential candidates. as a catholic, how has your view on abortion been shipped by your religion. >> i'm not catholic. i am an episcopalian. i cannot answer that question. my husband is a catholic. we have raised our children as catholics. i would be happy to talk about my view on abortion. it should be safe, legal, and repair. >> here is a valid point that is constructed. we have babies in america and i would that are being aborted simply because they are little baby girls, because the mother wants a boy instead of a girl. we have legislation before congress that prohibits sex selective abortion. she thinks it is ridiculous to talk about it. i think it ma
, it was the clinton 1992 phenomenon that has changed that. he won the state twice. in 2000 it went to george w. bush, but in 2004 went to john kerry. the president had a nine-point victory in 2008. we really are a tossup state. the polls go back and forth. it is difficult to determine who is going to win this state right now. host: is their early voting? how do new hampshire and -- new hampshire residents vote on election day? guest: there are absentee ballots. you have to sign a form that says you not be available on voting day to come to the polls. traditionally, they are open from 7:00 until 7:00. some are open until 8:00 p.m. on election day. we have one of the highest voter turnout in the country. other statistical interesting statistics -- statistical facts are that we are one of the least taxed state in the nation. the least taxed state. we have no income tax, no sales tax. both the democrat and republican candidates will campaign on that issue, pledging that they will not have an income tax or sales tax. are gubernatorial candidates right now are both running on that issue, as a matter of fa
of my own party when i think he is wrong. i disagreed with president clinton as a freshman member of the house on the north american free trade agreement. it was not easy opposing the president of the united states as a freshman member of congress and i have done this with barack obama on trade issues. i have done this with banking issues. on too big to fail, my legislation to break up the sixth largest trillion-dollar banks in this country, we lost on that but the support for this is growing. i have never had problems taking on the president of my own party. and i will not. >> you have 60 seconds. >> rather than listening to the rhetoric, look at the record. he has voted 96% of the time with his party. when i was a city councilman in lyndhurst, ohio, i introduced the first property-tax rollback in the history of our city. we give tax relief to senior citizens and working families. i worked in a bipartisan fashion -- and we reconstructed the oversight to the workers' compensation investment fund. i worked in a bipartisan way to pass down the budget and try to keep young people in
be one? -- that can be one? >> i do not talk freely -- four years and are supported hillary clinton. after hillary withdrew, it was suggested to support then senator obama. he asked me what my chances were and i gave the usual stock answer. i gave a good answer, but i could not resist. i said, on the other hand, we would be a balanced ticket. he doesn't wear a flag penn -- flag pin and i do. i got off the phone up to 30 p.m. and at 2:31 p.m. i got a phone call from david axelrod and he said, i hope you know that no one in chicago thought that was funny. [laughter] in the book recounts that story. i said, david, you guys better get a sense of humor. you will never make it to november. and as i said in the but, they never did, but they needed to november just fine -- i said in the books, they never did, but they made it to november just fine. the reason i do not think it is in play is because you have not seen the romney campaign or crossroads of a dime on tv in philadelphia. if they thought it was winnable, with ohio -- if you lose ohio but win in pennsylvania, it is a wash. and you
the way he has looked, with the help of his new best friend chris christie. i guess bill clinton will have to step aside. he was the president's new best friend. now it's chris christie. with that bipartisan blessing, the president looks good. for mitt romney, he was pushed off the stage. this storm was a kind of circuit breaker for about three days. momentum, at least according to the romney camp, had been building up for romney. you lose that. politics is not just about the national voter choice. there's a big dial-up emotions included in this. i think the air went out of the balloon to a certain degree for romney during those three days. does he have time to regen? of course. we are back in the campaign today and will be back at a fever pitch by monday night. look at where the candidates are going. that tells you where the race is really close. they are trying to get that extra point to win. you can do it if you finish up a campaign in a particular states, if the rally is good and everything clicks and you dominate the press in the final 12 hours to 15 hours, you might get an additional
.m. eastern time. then obama and former president bill clinton will hold a rally. next up, brief remarks from obama and mitt romney in obama's weekly address. he talks about the response to hurricane sandy. gov. ronnie gave the republican address this week. he talked about the u.s. economy and the presidential election. >> this weekend, millions of americans are still picking up the pieces from one of the worst storms in our history. i toured new jersey with governor chris cristie and witness the devastation firsthand. it is heartbreaking. families have lost loved ones. entire communities have been wiped away. even the first responders to repeatedly put themselves in harm's way have had losses of their own. today, i ask everyone to keep them in your prayers. as president, and promised them this. your country will be there for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild. throughout the week, i have been in constant contact with governors and mayors in affected areas who are doing an excellent job in extraordinary circumstances. we owe the first responders to have been working around-the- clock
knows that there are plenty -- there is plenty court left to be done. as president clinton said, it will take a lot longer than four years to finish rebuilding an economy that was on the brink of collapse. but here is the thing, what i can tell you for sure is that think fully in barack, we have a leader with a deep and unyielding faith in the american people a leader who understands that this country was built by men and women who wake up every day at work hard for their families and do it without complaint and regret. that is what my husband has been fighting for. he is been fighting for us and that is why when the stakes are so high, you can always trust barack to have our back. [applause] that you can trust. yes we can. yes we will. [applause] what we have to understand is over these past four years, together, we have been pulling ourselves out of that hole we started in and we're moving this country forward and making real and meaningful change. here is what folks have to ask themselves. are we going to turn around and go back to the same policies that got us in that hole i
in by the first george bush signed into law by clinton so this is bipartisan, that is our economy and we wrote the rules as far as a global economy for the world to follow and now others are following it. so when we talk about shipping jobs overseas and things of that nature, that is the game. we can't move the goal post, we wrote the rules. and i'll close on the great city of detroit, when we talk about the bailout and which way it should go or bain capital. people have to realize, they have to understand that most of general motors jobs are now presently overseas and the head of general motors who took all the money is now crying that 7.5 million in pay is not enough. the united auto workers are still at entry level being hired in at over $19 an hour that's their pay but their total compensation with healthcare and bonuses comes out to $55 an hour. host: talk to us about the economic situation particularly in mecklenburg county and in charlotte which is a big banking center. guest: it is primarily a finances center. we've been working to expand our energy base as well. but historically as th
think you could do it very quickly. in fact, i proposed it to president clinton in 1995. and it's -- there are states that have these programs. a couple states have it. it was really modeled on the hope scholarships in georgia where anybody with any high school graduate with a b average in georgia could go to any georgia university for free. and i said let's make that a national program. but you're right. that those are long-term responses. short-term responses, look, i think the president has given a number of them that bush could have done which were you recognize you have a particular problem, a new problem with creating jobs. it used to be if the economy grew at a certain rate, we were a jobs machine. in the 70s, and the 8s and 90s you didn't have to do anything in particular to get businesses to create jobs. for some reason that stopped. that fell sharply. the relationship between how fast the economy grows and how many jobs businesses created change by about 50%. very sharp change. i don't see that often in economics. so that's the problem. so you say ok, what do we do to
the clinton administration it was absolutely not apolitical. people make decisions about what it will find, what you will do. i was told that during the bush administration the oig would write reports. that are be completely redlined and turned into a one page memo if it did not fall on certain lines. so i do not think that as possible. >> let me disagree a little bit. maybe not vigilance, but with resources in our world, all these complaints about not covering the good news, different types of news that come from different types of entities can be reapportioned to other needs. at mayor's office, they had 1.3 of some of the best former writers in town, former journalists. they could have produced a voice of the mayor's office that was interesting to read, that i would have read. is that government propaganda? of course it is. but on the other hand, n look, nfl.com is doing. they run columns and interesting conflict-type stories. resources are going direct. in a world of dwindling resources, those resources are used for vigilance and to make sense of what they are saying. put it into contex
? not to gather together. -- not together together. [laughter] please, go ahead. >> secretary clinton has implemented a review of diplomacy development. i was wondering how you assess the impact has had on the way you as develops policy the-the u.s. -- the u.s. develops policy with asia. >> hello. i'm a doctorate student here at georgetown. my question has to do with military relations. you mentioned the air force and navy withdrawing from the region. the military relations are less than robust. d.c. minimal relation as important? in what way is what our energy be best spent on military relations? >> we will use both of these as an opportunity for all of our guests to make their final comments. >> thank you. i think it is helpful of the diplomacy review. it recognizes some of the challenges we face not just in asia, but globally. it was a good review. the key is resources going forward. secretary clinton has been a heavy weight. ieven in that environment, it has been hard to convince others of the need to sustain necessary levels of funding for diplomacy. what we really have is a governme
